He didn't -- I did. The edition I'm bringing out has my byline on it as

Seriously, for all that the Continental critics claim the author is dead,
you don't see them refusing money and fame for their work. It is
copyrighted, and if someone plagiarised one of these critics as I just
proposed to do, the critic would undoubtedly sue him; conclusions about the
integrity of the Continental critics are left as an exercise for The Reader.
